“Barrett and Harmony have some great chemistry!”
~ Under the Covers

As you all know, I’m a huge fan of this series.  When a new book comes out I jump at the chance to dive back in and get reacquainted with the guys and girls I have come to care for and love.  UNEXPECTED RUSH for some reason wasn’t calling to me as much as the others have been.  Which was strange because I have this love for the Cassidy family!  When I picked it up and started reading it, though, I really liked the beginning.  Barrett Cassidy and his best friend’s little sister… count me in!  But then, as the story progressed, I found myself getting more and more distracted.

Harmony has just been dumped but she’s not necessarily heartbroken about it.  When she has the opportunity to work with Barrett and help design his new home, her overprotective brother’s best friend, teammate and her college crush, she doesn’t hold back on seducing him.  Barrett comes from a tight knit family and that plays a big role in this book which is one of the things I love about the series and I enjoyed about this book.

I feel like there wasn’t much about either Barrett or Harmony that grabbed me and made me want to stick with it.  They were just ok and Barrett was even sometimes a bit of a ball-less idiot.  So while this was very sexy and it has the Burton stamp of friends and family that I have come to love, the couple themselves never made it into my heart.  Sorry!  I think maybe in comparison to the last book, this was hotter.  Barrett and Harmony have some great chemistry!  For me, I was just missing something to make me connect with them as characters that I can’t quite put my finger on.  Even with all that, it was still an enjoyable read.

I am however dying for more Cassidy books!  This is the third book about these hunks and I see maybe Flynn could be next.  I do love a good chef story 🙂

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
